We really wanted this match and we played well.” Few are playing as well as Woods and Kuchar, who won 5-and-4 Thursday and have made just one bogey in 26 holes. Schwartzel and Oosthuizen, winners on the first day, have six birdies and are still 3 down. “Both of us are playing well,” Woods said. “I hit a couple loose iron shots this afternoon, but made a couple good putts and just kind of put the heat on these guys. And 7 under through 11, that’s not bad in alternate-shot. It’s just one of those days where both teams are really playing well, and we still got our work cut out for us (Saturday).” No one on the International side played better than Ernie Els and Brendan de Jonge, who led the PGA Tour in birdies this season. The two made one eagle and six birdies to rout Hunter Mahan and Bill Haas. “This guy, he played beautiful and we both played well today,” said Els, the only player on the International team to taste victory in the series. “He kept it in play for most of the time, and hit a lot of greens and had a lot of looks at birdie. It’s going to be competitive in most matches, so that was nice.” Added de Jonge: “It’s been a ton of fun. Ernie is giving me way too much credit and it’s been a very, very exciting two days for me.” Looks like that will hold true for the next two days. Three, if Mother Nature’s stormy side makes another unwelcome visit.

They can put a big dent into the playoff hopes of the LA Galaxy on Sunday afternoon in the third leg of the SuperClasico at the StubHub Center (5 pm ET, UniMas). A win for the Goats would give them a season split against their rivals for the first time since 2007. Its one of those things where you throw the records out the window because usually it will be a close game, defender Bobby Burling told MLSsoccer.com. Anytime you get together with a familiar opponent, its going to be hectic at times. Maybe there will be some cards here or there. You just never know what to expect, but weve got to treat it like another game. READ: Five stops on Chivas USA’s quest for a new stadium | THE WORD The Rojiblancos have beaten the Galaxy only once in the last six seasons. Head coach Jose Luis Guero Real knows a surprise win Sunday would generate some much-needed momentum heading into 2014 and also complicate their rivals’ postseason chase, though thats not the main focus. For us, the most important thing is showing well and competing to win, Real told MLSsoccer.com. Were not thinking about anything extra, but simply just doing things well. We want to make our fans happy with a good showing. Were not thinking about [the Galaxy] not making the playoffs. That doesnt matter. We just have to make the best of this situation. Chivas USA earned a draw in the first meeting despite being down man and then fell, 1-0, in the second matchup.
